Hello - I am Ken from Alma, Ontario Canada

I originally studied to obtain my ham ticket during the winter of 1975. However life and circumstances got in the way of that. But I never lost the desire to obtain my Amateur License.

Fast forward to Spring 2012, I finally challenged the exam and received a Basic with Honours license some 35 years later!!  So another item checked off my bucket list !   

Radios: Elecraft K3,Elecraft KX3 for portable use, Icom IC910h on 2M & 70CM SSB, Yaesu FT8800 mobile, and a restored Yaesu FTDX 400 which can double as a shack heater.

Antennas; Alpha Delta Dipole at 40 feet, Force 12 C3 Tribander, InovAntenna LFA 144 & 70cm LFA432 on a TX-455 55 foot tower. Have 6 meter TGM yagi on a restored 40 ft "Paul Bunyan Whip" tower.

I have a great HAM shack in my sunroom - so there is lots of sunlight and moonlight. It is a great place to sit and HAM (just ask the Cat). This past year I have gotten to spend a bit more on the radio. But work still seems to get in the way of my hobbies.

I enjoy hamfests, field days,portable operating often from my sugar bush,  motorcycles and photography.

The past few years found me renewing my CW skills and obtain my code certification (even though it is no longer required here). I enrolled in CwOps this past fall and that was the push I needed to get back on the air. Also challenged the Morse Code exam and received my certification. I had learned code in 1975 but if you don't use it you lose it !  Any Elmering with CW will still be appreciated as I attempt to ramp up my speed.

This past few springs I participated in a CW Demo with the Elmira Amateur Radio club at the Elmira Maple Syrup Festival and people still come forward and ask  "so people are still doing Morse Code in todays world why" ... well it works when other communications do not and after all it is the "original digital"..

Looking forward to meeting you on the HF bands. I also have 2 meter & 70cm capability so you may find me there too.
